If you are looking for a couples retreat then this place is perfect. The beach is right across the road, you get wonderful views from the expansive deck that wraps around the accommodation. The bed was very comfy, and the double spa bath a real treat. There is tea and coffee available in the unit, and a decent flat screen... More

We stayed 1 night after coming back from Stewart Island heading to Te Anau. The room was comfy but you could hear the people in the next room. The breakfast was outstanding, the best we had on our 11 day road trip.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for our B & B . Sorry if next door noise disturbed you - it isn't a common problem but the charm of an older house can be balanced off by it's lack of soundproofing as in new buildings. I am very pleased you enjoyed the breakfast and I hope it... More

Fab views and rooms were lovely. The breakfast was nicely done ...but the bed sagged significantly and our friends in the other room had the same experience. We all woke with sore backs. Appreciating that the owner is selling the B&B spending money on new beds is crucial.

Hello Annie, Thank you for taking the time to review our B & B. I wish you had mentioned your problem with our beds at breakfast time.

We would highly recommend a stay at this B&B. This is our first experience of staying in accommodation like this. It was by mistake that we were referred to Riverton Beachfront as all accommodation in the area and beyond was full for a weekend event in nearby Invercargill.

Located opposite the beach plenty of scope for walking on beachfront. Judy cooks a seriously good breakfast that keeps you going all day and her recommendations for eating in the evening are spot on.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riverton Beachfront B & B is positioned on the waterfront and enjoys wonderful views of the Bay. We have only two B & B rooms and each has its own private entrance to the deck surrounding the rooms. You can sit on the outdoor furniture and relax, enjoying the view and the sunshine. (I can promise the view, but not the sunshine!) Breakfast is an excellent cooked meal along with cereals, fruits, both cooked and raw, breads, yogurts and tea or coffee. There are dining options close by for your evening meal and we can make suggestions for your activities while you stay with us. Geoff and I enjoy sharing Riverton with our guests and telling them of areas of interest to see locally.Come and stay and enjoy this gorgeous small port town. Judy Lange ... more   less
